Limbaugh back on the radio show

Conservative host Rush Limbaugh will return to his nationally broadcast radio show on Friday, a member of the show’s staff confirmed to The Hill on Friday morning.

The 69-year-old host – considered radio’s most influential Conservative – announced at the end of his show on Monday that he had been diagnosed with advanced lung cancer.

Limbaugh received the Medal of Freedom from President Trump during the State of the Union address on Tuesday. He would have undergone treatment this week. Earlier this week he said he suffered from shortness of breath before seeing doctors who discovered the problem.
“So I have to tell you something today that I wish I didn’t have to tell you.” This is a struggle for me as I had to brief my staff earlier today,” he said. “I can’t help but feel like I’m letting everyone down. The result is that I was diagnosed with advanced lung cancer.

“That day was one of the hardest days in recent memory for me because I knew this moment was coming. I’m sure you all know by now that I really don’t like talking about myself and I don’t don’t like to do things on me,” Limbaugh said at the end of his show.

The host then praised the relationship he has developed with his listeners.

“One thing I know that has happened over the 31+ years of this program is that there has been an incredible bond that has developed between all of you and me,” he said. he continued.

Limbaugh also added that his work as a host has brought him “great satisfaction and happiness”.

“Every day I’m not here, I’ll miss you and think of you,” Limbaugh said as he signed off.

Limbaugh recently signed a long-term contract. The deal was first announced, off the record, by Trump at a rally in Miami last month.

“We have great people. Rush just signed another four-year contract,” Trump said. “He just wants four more years, okay?”

Limbaugh started his nationally broadcast show 31 years ago.
